I'm cross with myself this morning. I've been so immersed in my anthology that I've been neglecting other projects, and had completely forgotten that the deadline for pattinase's 'Scarry Night' noir short story contest was the end of February. And... I missed it. Rats! It's particularly annoying as the idea - writing a story based on a snippet of overheard conversation - was something I really wanted to have a go at.
Luckily lots of other people weren't as daft as me and she's had a great response to her challenge. You can read the stories at pattinase's blog. I'm looking forward to trawling through them myself, even though mine isn't one of them.
